The National Museum of Women in the Arts hosted the Washington Ballet's Dracula Soiree, which kicked off October's spooky parties and celebrated the company's upcoming ballet, Dracula. The event featured a live performance by ballet dancers, food by Occasions Catering, open bar, a photobooth, a silent auction, and a live auction which included front row tickets to a Nationals playoff game, luxury goods, and more.

One thing we keep forgetting is how into the theme the Washington Ballet party-goers get. The event felt like a scene from True Blood with all of the dark clothing, capes, and fangs...and Sygyzy events really did it up with red bat lights on the ceiling and an over-the-top lit up bar. Likewise, the ballet's theme at their Prohibition Ball a year ago was taken very seriously. Loves it.

Guests included: Event chairs Ava Deylami, Nasim Deylami, Indira Mehrpour and Sara Lange; Washington Ballet artistic director Septime WebreMatt and Ashley Taylor BronczekNick Cafritz; Miss Maryland USA Allyn RoseJohn ArundelAllison Priebe BrooksCourtney CohenMarybeth ColemanKelly CollisTaryn FielderKirsten Good, Heather Guay, Kian Hassani, Adair HendricksonAlexa HolcombeAaron JacksonLisa Kelemen, Michele Kelemen, Wolfgang Koehling, Blair Kutrow, Winston Bao LordAlex Mehrnaz NainiTommy McFlySondra OrtagusMaggie PittsAmanda PolkCheryl Romero, Chris Rothstein, Nikki SchwabNina SnowJennifer StreaksTania Michelle TaylorAnna VanMeter, and GofG's Lindsay Sustarsic.
